IRRA Retro Race at HMS

With R4 no longer happening, I have decided to put on what I hope becomes a bigger event for fun to keep retro going.

March 10-12, I know day light savings is Sunday, this is the last weekend I am free before sprint car season. I will do tech, and race direct, unless anyone else would like to lol

Classes - IRRA Rules
Saturday -GTC followed by F1
Sunday - Can-Am

Format: All races will be one and done format. GTC will not be handout, no pro/am split unless enough people commit to make it justifiable. 1 minute qualifying. Awards for Concours, TQ, and Top 3 overall per class. All races on the King.

Friday March 10- Track opens 4:45 pm, closes at 10pm. This will be adjusted if I find someone to open the track earlier. $10 track time.

Saturday March 11- Track Opens at 8AM. Tech opens at 9:30AM for GTC, track off at 10AM. $25 entry fee includes track time. Tech for F1 closes one hour after end of GTC. $15 entry fee if its your second race, $25 if its your first.

Sunday March 12- Track Opens at 8AM, tech opens at 9:30AM for Can-Am, track off at 10AM. $25 entry fee.

If anyone is interested in sponsoring a class let me know.

For anyone to practice, there is a Penn-Ohio race running can-am, f1, and stock car Feb 25, it is a full Penn-Ohio event using their normal program.

If you have any questions please ask.

Hey Cap

Thanks for doing this!!!

You could run the two coupe classes together and split lap totals to determine FK and Pro winners?
